“We have been buying your canned albacore for years and there is nothing like it.” John; Phoenix, AZ

Our gourmet canned tuna comes from line-caught albacore tuna caught by our members, who have an unparalleled tradition of quality and sustainability. It is considered one of the healthiest fish on the planet, both for body and planet.
Albacore tuna is caught all over the world. But it is widely regarded among sushi chefs that the line-caught albacore tuna caught off our Pacific Northwest Coast is the best tasting and most nutritious. Caught when the juvenile albacore are following feed about 50 to 250 miles off the coast to bulk up for winter, these tuna are gorging on nutrient dense prey, eating a quarter of their weight each day in anchovies and sardines. Their oil content gets up to nearly 21% and their fattiness makes them delicious and loaded with heart-healthy oils.
